Dirty Little Misery by Tracey Martin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What a fantastic follow-up to book 1! We really see Jess start to come into her own even more, especially with the events at the end!
We join Jess as she is still dealing with the aftermath of being framed for murder. She was cleared, but there is still the same tension, especially around he slightly traumatized roommates. What's going well? Her relations with Lucen, now that she's fallen into that. Of course, there's a little bit of self sabotage going on there as she tries to hide secrets from just about everyone around her that she calls a friend. Her big secret also somehow manages to get even bigger in this book.
The big story here is Jess getting sucked into the Gryphon organization as a "consultant" to help solve some murders that are immediately assumed to be linked with the pred species she most closely tied herself to. Almost nobody has a true intention expressed here and it's exhausting for an outsider to try to untangle everything. By the end, though, Jess really has a better handle on things, though they certainly go to hell before then. I tore through this book in almost a single sitting because I couldn't stop. I can't wait to start the next one!
